LED bulbs = fast flash and bulb failure indicator 200 1993

Are there any 'good' solutions that allow us to use LED bulbs on the tail lights and front blinkers? I borrowed a few and immediately found the bulb failure indicator stayed illuminated and the blinkers go into rapid fire mode. I know the LEDs draw less current and I expected these symptoms. But I like the lights - much brighter.

I've read about putting resistors in parallel and swapping out the relay for an LED-compatible unit. Are there any simpler solutions?

Thanks.
